ICT In-House training

Following the Summer School on RTDI policies & instruments held in Kyiv, RCISD – the Regional Centre for Information and Scientific Development – organised an ICT in-house training for experienced Ukrainian researchers and research project managers in Budapest. The training took place on 6-7 October 2014, with the aim to offer intensive training for just a few of the best or most promising Ukrainian researchers of top-level Ukrainian RTDI organisations, as well, as to increase their likelihood of participation in RTDI projects with European partners.

RCISD organised a very successful and fruitful training for the Ukrainian researchers.

Leading Hungarian trainers, experts, and project managers accepted the invitation; thanks to their preparedness, knowledge and experience instructive and interesting presentations were offered during the two-day training. Creative and useful group work – led by experienced trainers – improved the practical skills of the trainees on project preparation and proposal writing. During the discussions the experts gave useful advice and shared their experience with the trainees.

As the aim of BILAT UKR*AINA is to promote EU MS/AC – Ukraine cooperation in Science and Technology, the training supported participation in joint projects by providing concrete information and practical training on proposal writing.

The in-house training gathered senior Hungarian researchers in the field who shared their experience through presentations or roundtable discussions. The participants coming from various top-level universities or research institutes of Ukraine also had the chance to get hands-on experience in H2020 proposal writing with the support of their Hungarian fellows. Opportunities for networking aimed to increase the likelihood of formulating joint projects. The in-house training was closed by a study visit to the CERN Wigner Data Center.

The ICT in-house training in Budapest was the first of the four BILAT UKR*AINA training sessions; the upcoming events will organised by other project partners in Warsaw and Paris.
